Lowndes County -- A fisherman lands an unusual catch in South Georgia.

Al Pace caught a flounder in the Withlacoochee River in Lowndes County Wednesday night. The fish is typically found in saltwater, but D.N.R. rangers say it may be part of a rare freshwater flounder species native to Florida.

"I didn't know what to think, I didn't know if someone had put it there or how it could live in fresh water from salt water, and if nobody put it there, where'd it come from," said Pace.

D.N.R. rangers say the fish probably swam about 40 miles upstream from the Suwanee River into the Withlacoochee.
